Local schools hit by teachers' strike


Teachers will stage a one day strike on Thursday, 27th June, which will affect many local schools.

This is part of action being undertaken in the north west by the two biggest unions, the National Union of Teachers (NUT) and National Association of Schoolmasters Union of Women Teachers (NASUWT), over teachers' pay, pensions and working conditions.

As a result, Alderley Edge Community Primary School will be partially closed, with only Year 1 and 2 attending, as will Nether Alderley Primary School. Mottram St Andrew Primary Academy will be open as usual.

At Wilmslow High School, where 54 members of staff will be on strike, Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 will not be in school on Thursday.

I would greatly welcome knowing the background of this story, although that may be beyond the remit of alderleyedge.com to supply. By and large, it takes quite a lot to provoke the NUT to even the smallest industrial action, so I would be curious to know what is their perceived grievance.

Their grievance will be they might have to teach.

Think they are having a moan about their pensions again. Yawn.
